What you’re looking at above is the brother of the dual-core LG Optimus 2X that was recently announced at CES, the LG Optimus Black. What makes this device so special and great? you ask. Well, inquisitive reader, the Optimus Black has the brightest display on a mobile phone reaching a staggering 700nits to anyone who actually knows what that means, this is helped by LG’s NOVA display technology, move over AMOLED. It may only be a single core 1GHz CPU powering the Optimus Black, but our good friend Mr Gadget has assured both the Optimus Black and Optimus 2X are blazing devices.
Gizmodo is reporting that the Optimus Black is headed to Australia in May and LG are hoping to have it on more than one carrier with a monthly price of $49 to $79, we’re hoping for the former. Hit the break for some specs.
- Android 2.2
- 1GHz Snapdragon CPU
- 4″ 480x800px NOVA Display
- Only 9.2mm thick
- 5MP (?) rear-facing camera as well as 2MP front-facing camera
Now if only we could get the Tegra 2 powered Optimus 2X downunder as well!
